    Looking forward to reviews!

    Looks like I've already got a few SSDs based on the new Marvell 9187 controller.
    (should be very interesting to see how Plextor handles "storage mode" vs the V4)

    I prefer Plextor "good old style": writes always on top in any fill condition.

    I'm happy with my Corsair P. Pro 128GB, but I want an 256GB (or two

    I hope for 5 years warranty for M5 Pro, also.

    Vat excluded

    128 GB = 140 euro
    256 GB = 294 euro
    512GB = 639 euro

    But I think prices will go in line with M3 Pro, in any case, high end.

    Hopefully there is no "storage mode". That whole thing is a gimmick I can do without.

    +1...With any luck the whole perf/storage thing is a product of the Indilinx fw. Fingers crossed.

    Now that SF has fixed trim, I can't wait to see all the review updates of the various SF toggle drives that have been without trim since the toggle required the trimless SF 5 Series base fw...they couldn't just stick with the earlier 3 series fw with trim like Ocz and others did. Some vendors knew that series 5 trim was broke but the released it anyway cuz it yielded a performance bump over the old base fw. Some vendors are gonna push out the initial fixed FW (5.0.3) asap but a lot will prolly wait for 5.0.4 which is said to be in testing.

    Here's a great read about it...

    Are you mad ? There is no NDA here in Japan and it is already selling in Japan, I just got a PX-256M5P for 21,980 yen a couple of hours ago for my new rig.

    Looks like we finally get to see if the perf/stor modes are an 'Indilinx Infusion'. Also curious as to the controller clock speeds as well to see if Ocz is the only one to overclock it. Glad to see 19nm toggle out...I read a few months ago that the 20nm IMFT would be the first out of the gate and that Tosh was a bit behind Intel. Looks like a little disinformation was goin on. SF based 19nm drives shouldn't be far off now that the Series 5 fw is fixed...5 is required to run the 19nm toggle. Can't wait for the all the 19nm reviews to start rolling in!

    Plextor is such a strange company. They don't even officially list the M5P on their Asia website yet, despite the fact that they are already selling M5Ps in Japan:

    Nice pics! You are making me jealous, I cannot buy an M5P yet in the USA.

    Do lots of stores in Japan have the M5P? Or is it hard to find in Japan?

    M5P are many (popular) online-shops has still in stock, immediately available for purchase.

    on.jpg

    I think also be easy to purchased outside Asia too.
    SSD users are saturated. There was also a Ninja selling for a week.

    I had to stock up M5S. Take a break for a while.

    It launches tomorrow in the US. The 4K numbers in the set from the store are weak. It is actually much faster. I would say those numbers were ran on a system with heavy C-States enabled. The drive does over 100MB/s 4K write.

    Now really, could anyone from TweakTown actually be mad about an NDA lead, lol. I was just giving you a hard time.

    I personally can't say much until tomorrow but you guys will want to read the article for sure. I'm wrapping up fill testing now. The Marvell controllers have always ran a low slower than SF when the drive is half full...not so much of an issue now.

    Also Zaxx, if you saw my news story from Computex about 19nm Tosh and 20nm IMFT you would know that 19nm Tosh was ready back then. 20nm IMFT was....well not looking so good. Now that I'm running power draw in my testing I have to say Tosh is the way to go 100% of the time.
